Before ya know it, it will be time to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride month in June. It’s 30 days filled with events to celebrate living openly and to remember the Stonewall Riots — the events that took place in New York City in June 1969 escalating the fight for gay rights in the United States. It’s also a time to look forward to the future and acknowledge the fight we still have ahead of us.
If you’ll be attending any Pride-focused events or parties, it’s never too soon to start planning your outfit. You can proudly rep and show your support with the symbolic rainbow colors that were adopted by the community in the late ’70s. Or you can keep things chill in a minimal outfit while showing some love for LGBTQ+-owned fashion brands. And, with so much on the lineup each year, you’ll probably need more than one look to get through the month. Whether you want something casual and functional to keep you comfortable as you march through the streets or you would rather sacrifice your comfort with sequins and heels, check out the 25 Pride outfit ideas, below.

If You Love Statement Pieces
Runner Shorts With Side Stripe
A jacket this good deserves to be paired with shorts that are just as worthy. A rainbow-printed set like this might not keep you cool, but it’ll definitely make your outfit the coolest.
If You Love Statement Shoes
Pride Lightening Bolt White T-Shirt
Love a good shoe moment? Make yours the center of your outfit with a bright, fun pair and a few smaller pops of color in the rest of your look.
If You Love Biker Shorts
Tie-Dye Biker Shorts
Make your bottoms the focus of your look with this tie-dye printed pair. A cropped cardigan in a bright shade and simple white sneakers is all you need to complete your outfit.
If You Love Athleisure
Originals Pride Trefoil T-Shirt
You can dress your rainbow sneakers up, or you can keep it all one theme with head-to-toe athleisure.
If You Love Graphic Tees
BOI | GRL Sleeveless Top
Here’s a need-to-know brand that’s run by queer POC. The label specializes in promoting powerful messages, like this boi/grl top. Throw it on with cropped jeans and chunky sneakers to complete your look.
If You Love the Bucket Hat Trend
Tie-Dye Reversible Bucket Hat
We’ll all be leaning into this trend come summer. Add a multicolored hat to your collection and pair it with a matching top. You’ll want to keep the sun out of your face during the parade anyway.
If You Want to Keep It Easy and Breezy
Tiare Hawaii Float Tube Top in Tie Dye
To avoid sweating like crazy, try a loose tube top in a wild print, like this one. Pair it with a matching short, or wear it with a pair of jeans, depending on your mood.
If You Love Layers
Love Muscle Tank
A jean jacket makes every outfit feel complete. If you love to layer, throw yours on over the top of your rainbow tank and joggers.
If You Love a Clean Look
Drea Ribbed Mini Dress
The multi-color trim makes this otherwise plain dress perfect for celebrating Pride.
If You Love Boiler Suits
Make it easy on yourself and throw on comfy jumpsuit, like this one from the queer-owned brand Wildfang. Your fave Chucks and a black baseball cap will pull the outfit together.
If You Like to Keep It Simple
Multi Embroidered Grey Oversized T Shirt
If you’d rather make a smaller statement, opt for a white graphic tee with a subtle prismatic slogan. Complete your understated look with light sweatpants and white boots to keep it all similar shades—except, of course, for your bold shades.
If You Love a Sweatsuit
Sweatshirt With Rainbow Stripe
A sweatsuit might not be practical for an NYC summer, but if it’s chillier where you are, a stripe one is the perfect way to stay warm while you celebrate.
If You Want to Be Festive But Cozy
Fleece Rainbow Trim Sweatshirt
If unpredictable weather won’t stop you from celebrating Pride, you’ll want to have a few back-up options for your look just in case. This bright yellow sweatshirt with a rainbow detail is as practical as it is fun.
If You Love a Good Trend
Multi Tie Dye Printed Sheer Mesh Ruched Racer Crop Top
Oh, you didn’t hear? We’re shoving pants into ankle straps now. If you’re game to wear heels, style your brightest pair with a matching colorful top and jeans.
If You Love a T-Shirt Dress Moment
You can get your Ariana Grande on in an oversized shirt, especially one designed by a queer creator. Anchor the look with over-the-knee boots or your go-to thick-soled sneaks.
If You Love Iridescent Colors
Cuffed Tracksuit Bottoms
Rainbow, but make it metallic. If you want to wear all of the colors but want to go a different route than the usual ROYGBIV color scheme, opt for an iridescent two-piece instead.
If You Need an Outfit That’ll Keep You Cool
Rainbow Detail Asymmetric Bra Top
If you’ll be celebrating in sweltering temps, you’ll be glad you went with this athletic short and top set. The unexpected pops of color make it feel more like an outfit and less like you’re on your way to work out.
If You Love Jeans and a T-Shirt
Striped Lettuce-Edge Tee
There’s something about nice fitting jeans and a laid back T-shirt that makes the combo a hard one to beat. A striped fitted shirt with cuffed jeans and clean sneakers is sometimes all you need.
If You Love Fringe
Kristine Bright Tassel Romper
If the word “party” was a piece of clothing, it would be this techni-colored fringe romper. Wear it with boots so you can stay comfortable while celebrating all day and night long.
If You Like to Keep it Casual
Keep a hoodie like this close by for when and if the temps cool off at night. You’ll be glad you did when you don’t have to go home to change.
If You Love Sequins
Firework Wonders Shift Dress
What’s better than a rainbow dress? A rainbow sequin dress. Wear yours with sneakers, heels, or even knee-high boots.
If You Want to Wear a Matching Set
Rainbow Stripe Mini Skirt
Simple accessories that go with everything and coordinating sets, like this asymmetric top and skirt, make picking out your outfit so much easier.
If You Love a Jumpsuit
Wide Leg Jumpsuit in Rainbow
This white breezy jumpsuit with microstripes and a lace-up detail is perfect for the person who wants to dress up but also wants to feel like they’re wearing pajamas.
If You Love Yoga Pants
If you live in your workout clothes and activewear, why change that up?! Get yourself a pair of stretchy leggings and wear them with your favorite sneakers and a matching workout top.
If You Love a Crop Top
Crop Button-Up Cardigan
This tie-dye cropped sweater goes perfectly with a pair of cutoffs, a sparkly belt, and sneakers.
If You Want to Wear Shorts
Brighter Days Tank in Rainbow
A tank top could pretty much go with anything, but it looks especially chic tucked into these khaki belted shorts and paired with nude heels.
If You Want to Wear Something Sheer
Power Mesh Top
This long-sleeve mesh top in a gradient of pastel colors looks oh-so-cool paired with high-waist jeans and a white bandeau underneath.
If You Love a Pop of Color
Rainbow Sweatshirt Purple Medium
One way to make the bright colors really pop is to contrast it with darker colors. The rainbow here might be minimal, but it really stands out against the cropped hoodie and cut-off shorts.
If You Only Like a Little Bit of Color
Soho Paint Splatter Tee
Not everyone likes to dress full-out for Pride, and that’s okay. This colorful splatter painted T-shirt is a subtle way to take part.
